My home is at the periphery of the ever-widening Buffalo Bayou (the intersection 50 yards from me is impassable), but our homes are dry. Most indications are that my block will be spared after all. Many of my neighbors here are not so lucky.
I sit here with an SigSauer on my hip, a SCCY as a BUG, and my SigSauer M400 concealed within the triple 'V' of my tree, an arm's reach away.
You won't read any news stories about successful looters on our block.
Thank God that you seem to be doing "OK". You may find this link useful if you do not already have:

Let us know what we can do for you. Do not hesitate to ask. Those of us living outside of the Gulf Coast are feeling pretty fortunate and not sure what else we can do...
